The actress and Clinton supporter, who fancies herself as a leading feminist, said in the statement that she didn’t know about all the allegations against Weinstein or his settlements with women:
In a statement sent to HuffPost exclusively by Streep’s longtime publicist Leslee Dart, Streep says she did not know that Weinstein― with whom she has collaborated for years on films like “August: Osage County” and “The Iron Lady” and once jokingly referred to as a “God”― was engaging in “inappropriate, coercive acts” and that he had paid financial settlements to at least eight women after they accused him of harassment and assault.
Streep’s statement is at the link. Juanita Broaddrick spoke up:
Maybe now, Meryl, you can understand how wrong you were to support an enabler of a rapist husband. Wake up Hollywood! https://t.co/ZgRx7hIUN0

What are the odds that lefty Hollywood will actually “wake up”? Stay tuned!
She will never understand because she is complicit. I don’t believe she didn’t know. She doesn’t care about Women, only the leftist agenda
